November Nights.

On nights like this, this heart trembles. Pounding the door that holds my peace. Fear– with fists closed, violates the walls I put up for myself.   I wish I did not let her in.   But on nights like this, I hold the door open. Knowing she will slip through and give me something…

Gaia.

Pink petals float gently into mama gaia defying gravity– becoming a part her cycle.   Gentle water trickles past pebbles and moss to join something unending– becoming air, water, and earth.   Fruitful trees planted on sweet mother earth, aged in love– becoming our life source.   Yet,   Earth burns vigorously and we breathe…

Even after death, believing we’d be attached forever.   It’s amazing how naive teenagers can be. It’s amazing how love can touch someone like me.   I…

The System.

Brothers. Sisters. Lost family members. Blood shed. Violence Just to be gang bangers.   What has your gang done for you? Besides a sense of belonging. Addiction, murder, and theft.

Seasons.

Are you pleased by the simple things in life?   As seasons change we realize the beauty  in change itself.   Grass turns brown as leaves become coupled in orange, yellow, red, and hints of auburn.   Blankets of snow remind us how coldness exists outside our bodies.   As we embrace each other and…
